Google to buy wind power from Broomfield’s RES Americas

BROOMFIELD — The title song of the Rodgers and Hammerstein musical “Oklahoma!” describes the Sooner State as the place “where the wind comes sweepin’ down the plain.” Sooner than later, that wind will help power Internet search giant Google’s data centers.

Google will buy 200 megawatts of renewable energy from Broomfield-based RES Americas’ Bluestem wind farm in Beaver County, Okla., as part of the 842 megawatts it plans to buy over the next two years to power its 14 global data centers.

In a media release, Google (Nasdaq: GOOG) described the contracts as the largest and most diverse renewable-energy purchases ever by a company that is not a utility. The agreements boost Google’s total purchases of wind- or solar-sourced energy to 2 gigawatts.

The new purchase will come from a total of six energy projects, including four in the United States, one in Chile and one in Sweden.

Founded in 1997 and with headquarters at 11101 W. 120th Ave., Suite 400, in Broomfield, RES provides development, engineering, construction and operations services to the utility-scale wind, solar, transmission and energy-storage markets. The company employs more than 500 full-time workers.
